    A lifetime of struggling, digging,trying to uncover the root of the problem instead of just accepting it was and always will be

    I still believe it's an illness but I do not agree that once one always one.

    And depression is mental health my friend so you kinda need to pick one here.No pressure I'm just saying, just trying to heal beside you not in front or behind you...side by side like people who truly care for one another as humans that have been fighting for so very long

    If it'd a disease than its a disease,but if it'd triggered by depression or anger,or emptiness,etc than its a mental health issue,which would mean treat mental health and get the individual stable and confident again and the desire to use drug's will dissipates thing's in life will suddenly be going 100 % better than before.JUST MY OPINION

    I think there's a misunderstanding here. I do think both are disorders.

    I guess it depends on the individual. I personally would never call a disease a disorder,but I would call a mental health issue a disorder.Brother listen it's just my opinion and according to the world and addiction the way it's currently understood you are correct and i am wrong so again just my own opinion
